TIL(rsync): you can use `--ignore-missing-args` argument to skip non existing files!
I know #Linux can be frustrating to learn and use. But it's kind of like Mastodon/the fediverse more broadly - community-built and a _relatively_ safe harbor from surveillance capitalism and the inevitable bad actions from Apple or Microsoft.
I switched over in the early 2000s and haven't had to look back since then. I highly recommend considering the switch as an investment in your own future well-being. There's an upfront migration cost, but it'll pay off for many years.
Found a really cool tool today!

I have been doing some reading on relative relocations and **RELR** (`-z pack-relative-relocs`) and found 2 great posts!
I'm thrilled to announce that we have released the new version of "**ratatui**" today! 🐀🎉

I am looking for a job. It's becoming a little urgent, so if anyone has any leads whatsoever, please send them my way.
I'm a malware guy: reversing, detection, Intel, anything really related to defending and proactive research. I can also do system administration duties when it comes to Linux. I am able to quickly pick up anything I don't already know.
Solved a Linux/MacOS portability issue today 🙊
It turns out, `grep` doesn't print out the file name if you don't provide multiple files on Linux. The workaround is to append `/dev/null` as an extra file.
And finally let's get to #Linux. A few months back Google Maps started crashing on some machines but there wasn't a clear pattern as to what was causing it.
Still, that should have worked... 10/13
Throughout two days we had some hacking, lightning talks, workshops and BoFs!
Saturday morning I had the pleasure of welcoming around 5 people (at 10:00 in the morning!)
to the room.
Last year, the source code of the 1995 #Playstation game wipEout was leaked online.
A developer painfully went through the source code and... rewrote everything to provide a "remastered" version that works on Windows, Mac and #Linux and that you can also play in your browser thanks to #WASM !
The whole explanation is really worth a read:

#linux architectural question regarding encryption:
Which data is actually cached? If I have an ext4 filesystem on a dm-crypt'ed block device, when is the data actually encrypted?
Are the accesses to the mapped device cached or the access to the underlying disk or both? Asked the other way around, do I pay the price for encryption and decryption when writing a file and immediately reading it again? Or is the file read back from cache immediately and only encrypted when writing back the cache?
